This is one of those books that you want to beat people over the head until they read it. Yes, I enjoyed it that much. In the beginning, we meet Tover – he’s the Navigator who is basically someone who can move objects and – even more excitingly – people with his mind. He’s only one of forty two people in the universe who can do such a thing, so obviously he’s pampered, worshipped, rich, a bit full of himself – but not overly so that you can’t stand the guy. Quite the opposite – I loved Tover from the start. The story is told from his POV, so you really get to know him. Another thing you get to experience through his eyes is how crushed he is when the man he loves, Cruz, betrays him by selling him to pirates. I wanted to kill Cruz – I’m talking serious damage. Tover is beaten and tortured and his world as he knows it is destroyed. I don’t want to give anything away, but gradually, Tover’s perception changes regarding his captivity as well as his former circumstances. It was interesting to watch as Tover’s attitudes and beliefs evolved as more and more of the world around him – as well as Cruz’s motives – are uncovered to him. I loved Tover in the beginning, but even more so after his courageous journey. The world building in this story is epic and interesting. For those of you who quake in the face of sci-fi, no worries – everything is easily understandable, yet creative and original at the same time. Personally, I love the darkness in this story, it’s one of the aspects of sci-fi I enjoy the most. Yes, there’s beatings and torture, but it isn’t overdone – it’s all relevant to moving the story forward. Also, there isn’t any rape or non-con, so that’s not an issue. Is it romantic? Definitely, it did satisfy my erotic romance itch as well. In the end, I did love Tover and Cruz together, but boy, did he have to prove himself to me (and to Tover). Overall, this is a wonderfully written story that makes me hope that we see more of these two in the future. Once they finally got together, I wanted it to keep on going and going. This one rightfully deserves to be on your must read list and I wholeheartedly give it 5 stars. Reviewed by Michele for Crystal’s Many Reviewers *Copy provided for review*
